College Affordability Proposals
Share |

The Lumina Foundation released a group of 15 policy papers on 04/14/2014 that examine new models of student financial support in an effort to increase college affordability, which the Lumina Foundation calls one of the "biggest barriers” to accessing higher education. The papers highlight structures currently in place to help students pay higher education costs; however, they show these structures not set up to efficiently provide both access and support completion.

Commissioned by the Lumina Foundation, the papers are intended to promote greater discussion and evaluation around several key topics in student finance, including affordability of higher education, student loan repayment, and federal-state-institutional partnerships. They are aimed at addressing solutions that can be implemented at the institutional, state and federal levels.
